Hello ...
In 256PSK, how many bits will each symbol be able to represent?
My answer is 8. is it correct? or could it be just ONE bit ?
Advice appreciated ... and thank you

Thank you for referring me to a number of web sites.
Is there one that you can specify please ??
This has just confused me more. Can you not offer help which is the purpose of the website ??? if you don't wish to help then why bother anwsering ??? 
I expect you to choose the appropriate links that will help you. I expect students to read, comprehend, and think.
Usually in search results, only the first five or six links are worth checking on.
Read and think. 
This is an example of a PSK:
8e40da81a553816f62533aa496884a189426b802f087944c0cd14d6dcf5c7305
in hexadecimal. So each character represents 4 bits. There are 65 characters total, probably one of them is for CRC check.
